WASHINGTON, D.C. — President Joe Biden is attempting to concentrate attention on one of his most popular measures, reducing the cost of prescription medications, in order to jump-start momentum on his stalled domestic agenda.
On Thursday, Biden will go to Culpeper, Virginia, to draw attention to the “unacceptable” cost of drugs, according to the White House.
Biden’s trip will also provide him with a chance to begin pushing his party’s candidates for the November midterm elections. He’ll be joined by Abigail Spanberger, a representative from Central Virginia who is at risk of losing her seat.
Voters have traditionally supported efforts to reduce prescription medication prices, but a bipartisan agreement has eluded them.
